2023-24 Season

Game 30: Michigan at Ohio State Recap

There’s really nothing left to say. Another blowout loss, another dismal performance, and one painful step closer to the end of the season.

Michigan lost by 20-plus points, again, this time to a rival with an interim coach. Ohio State didn’t play particularly well, but Michigan simply lacks anything required to be competitive.

The Wolverines have lost seven in a row and are ranked 242nd nationally by BartTorvik since beating Wisconsin on February 7th.

Among high-major teams, only Louisville and DePaul — the poster children for awful college basketball — have been worse in that timespan.

The Wolverines are a team made up of players who aren’t capable of what they are being asked to do and struggle to execute what they are capable of. A team that isn’t talented enough to have a chance but still fails to play up to its talent.

The basketball has been shockingly bad and the team could lose 24 games, but somehow the state of the program feels worse than the dismal record.
